Just come across the We Covet blog – it’s great. And what a fantastic tagline –
‘So many things to love, never quite enough space, time, or money’.
Never was a truer word spoken!

Loads of lovely art, fashion and home accessories that I’m flattered to be mentioned amongst, thanks Esther!

Ok I’m cheating a bit here, this is neither a trend nor my artwork so really it completely goes against the principles of this blog! Sometimes, however I come across things that I think are so good I just have to share them. And this is one of them:

Brooklyn Fare

Seen on both Ffffound and Lovely Package I just love the slightly sarcastic edge to the them. Whilst I enjoy frequenting a certain coffee chain (which shall remain nameless) it also drives me mad when they insist I speak their lingo. In what language does tall mean small? And I know my language skills aren’t up to scratch but I’m pretty sure I was taught that grande meant large in French and Italian, not medium. And don’t even get me started on venti…

So what a great packaging campaign by Mucca Designs for Brooklyn Fare, straight to the point and factually correct! They also did the following humorous napkins…

Napkins

I am a collage artist but I also work full time in an industry where I have to be aware of the current trends within the visual cultures. I have recently realised that I’m really interested in this subject, not because I have to have the latest of everything – far from it. I’m fascinated as to how and why the trends come about and I enjoy watching them grow, the products on the market and the many interpretations. Plus, as an artist myself I appreciate the influence they have on my work.

So, I’m going to (try) to identify and illustrate the key trends that I come across in the worlds of art, design and interiors. I will be pointing out what’s currently in, why and how to stay on trend. Feel free to email me with examples that you come across, or artists and designers working within these themes.

They might not be the official trends, the ones the fashion conscious would want us to follow but but hey, if enough people are doing it I think we can classify it a trend between friends…
